Cruise has lost control.

On Saturday, Katie Holmes spent her second consecutive marathon session at the midtown Manhattan offices of her attorney. And though estranged husband Tom Cruise has not been photographed in over a week, the superstar and his team "are in major crisis mode," a source close to the Rock of Ages actor, 50, tells Us Weekly.

"Tom's whole life . . . is being torn apart," the source says of Cruise, who was blindsided when Holmes filed for divorce and full legal custody of six-year-old daughter Suri on June 28.

"He is on the phone with his lawyers 24/7," the source explains, confirming that the Oscar nominee "is trying to hash this out" — custody, child support and property division — without going to court.

Cruise, whose loyalty to the Church of Scientology and its teachings became a sticking point in his nearly six year marriage to Holmes, "doesn't want his entire life laid out for everyone to dissect anymore."

"Every move she made and everything she did was controlled . . . [Katie] felt like she was in Rosemary's Baby," another source told Us Weekly of Holmes' bold move. "She felt she had to get out to save her daughter."
